TCRG NEWS & BOUT RECAPS

Introducing … the TCRG Mix Tapes!

It may be the off-season for the house teams, but seriously exciting things are afoot with the Terminal City Rollergirls. We’re hosting B.C.’s first International WFTDA Division 1 Playoffs September 16-18 at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Some of the world’s top teams from Canada, USA, Australia, and Sweden will be playing on our home turf. Make sure you grab tickets in advance!

But that’s not all. Drumroll please…

We’re proud to announce the launch of our brand new roller derby training program: The TCRG Mix Tapes!

The Mix Tapes program is everything roller derby should be: an inclusive environment for all skill levels to learn to skate, learn the basics of roller derby, and train to be drafted to teams.

Never skated before? We can teach you how to stop, fall safely, and learn a strong skating stride. Comfortable on skates thanks to a background in hockey or figure skating? You can quickly advance to and train with others in a group at your level. Not a lot of spare time, but hoping to skate when you can and enjoy the vibrant Vancouver roller derby community? We welcome you to participate as a drop-in.
